Mercedes E300 Overview

The Mercedes E300 is classed as a mid-sized executive car which is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company Mercedes-Benz. This vehicle is part of the Mercedes E-class and was introduced in the W124 model. It wasn't until 1993 that the name was changed to the E-Class, and the new naming system was put into place, using the E300 instead of the 300E. The E300 was soon changed to the E320 for the petrol versions, while the diesel version was sold as the E300. These cars are very luxurious with a classy interior design and are also very spacious. The engines are well refined, and the cars are overall well built. These cars hold their value and are great cars to own. Does this sound like your experience of the E300?

Mercedes E300 History

The first generation (1984-96) of the E-class was where the E300 was introduced. It wasn't until the naming system of the E-class changed in 1993 from 300E to E300, that this vehicle was introduced. The petrol version changed from 300E to E320 but the diesel version was named E300. This version was the fuel economy version of the E-class.

The second generation (1995-2003) also only had the E300 name for the diesel version. This version of the e-class was more expensive than the previous version, but it took this vehicle into the upper end of this class.

There was no vehicle which used the E300 name for the third generation (2002-09).

The fourth generation (2002-present) reintroduced the E300 name on the 3.0L petrol, 3.0L diesel and a more economical 2.1L diesel hybrid version.
